1773 JESSE MIXON, JR., JESSE MIXON(702) , JOHN MIXON IV (6), JOHN MIXON III (3), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

Jesse Mixon, Jr., s. of Jesse Mixon and his wife Mary, was b. in South Carolina ca. 1790. He, along with some brothers and his father, all then living in Bulloch County, GA, were participants in the Georgia Land Lottery of 1805. He did not go to Mississippi with his father and some other of his brothers, but remained

in Georgia. There is reason to believe that this is the same Jesse Mixon who m. Sarah Bowen in Bulloch County, Aug.3, 1801, and evidently he is the same Jesse Mixon found in Telfair County, GA, census of 1820, where he is listed with two males 10-16; 1 male 16-26; 1 male 26-45; 1 female under 10; and 1 female 26-45. The 1830 census of Telfair lists Sarah Mixon, evidently a widow, with a daughter age 10-15. Nearby are two young married couples, William Mixon and his wife, with a son under age 5, and Edward Mixon and his wife with no children. Sarah must have died before 1840, for she is not shown in that census, and probably so, as the 1830 census gave her age as 50 - 50.  It is possible Jesse moved back to SC as there is a Jesse Mixon shown in SC in 1830 who later was show with wife Catherine (see #19992).
